Youth Leadership Summit Series (2013, 2015, 2016, 2017)
A 7-10 days incubation program in the summer to equip Southeast Asian youth leaders with necessary skills, mindset and support system to turn their ideas and passions for service into impactful actions.
In 2013, I co-organized the first Youth Leadership Summit (YLS) in Singapore where I developed and facilitated a program on service leadership for youth from all over Asia. From the summit, I mentored the participants on the development of 9 service projects from which 4 projects were executed in Southeast Asian countries in Summer 2014 to help under-served communities and create social impact.
Starting from 2015, I have been serving as an advisor and mentor for the team during the development and implementation phase of the summits in Vietnam, Singapore andThailand. I also lead leadership retreats for the team to ensure a high-performing team and manage conflicts between organizers.

While on ground, I facilitated the development of a sustainable business model for the indigenous community in Gombak and led leadership workshops for a team of 25 people.
